    So I planted a few avocado seeds at the beginning of summer, and they finally started to sprout. My only concern is that summer is almost over, and as far as I know, avocado doesn't fair well in cold weather.

    Should I move it inside? Or keep it outside where there is sunlight?

    I live in Seattle, and the weather is cooling down. So I am not sure what I should do.

    We have to bring the avocado trees inside during the winter. If the temps get below 45 degrees (F) or 7 degrees (C) they die. You can look at the following sites for more information on growing avocado trees: California Avocado Commission http://www.avocado.org/ or the University of Californis Avocado Information Page http://www.ucavo.ucr.edu/ [/url]

    Happy gardening :stew1:
